The Knife Angel is the National Monument Against Violence and Aggression, a 27ft tall sculpture made by the British Ironwork Centre from over 100,000 knives which have been seized by the police or handed in and taken out of circulation and off the streets.

The sculpture was created specifically as a focus for education and events highlighting both the negative effects of violent behaviour and our critical need for social change.

The Knife Angel sculpture will be situated in the grounds towards the rear of Blackburn Cathedral, and individuals and groups will be able to visit free of charge at any time.

It is only necessary for groups to book if they wish to take part in a led session, or to lead their own workshop making use of a meeting room and downloadable resources.

To book either a free room or a led session, please email:
